Alchemy & The Birth of Modern Science

A colourful tale of some of history’s most spectacular edgeworkers. Banned by emperors,
paid by kings,pursued by the inquisition: from before the dawn of history alchemists have
explored the edges of the known. With origins in Egypt and Babylon, alchemy is the story of
humankind’s earliest quest to understand and bring into balance the inner and outer worlds.
Before their discovery by modern science, alchemical initiates manifested microscopes,
submarines, gunpowder, alchohol, porcelain and much, much more. Alchemists were the
midwives of ideas and methods that were to become the science of our modern age. 2000
years ago, wherever there was an edge there was an alchemist. This is their story.
Nick Marchmont is an independent researcher with a lifelong interest in ancient cultures,
vanished civilisations and old knowledge. He has been writing, developing and performing
his Healing History talks since 2009 and is now a widely recognised entity with many friends
and supporters. His presentations celebrate the skills of our ancestors and of all those
whose activities have led us to the present moment. Nick aims specifically to enliven the
interest of all in the history, mystery and beauty of this, our particular place in time. Nick also hosts Dr Rock’s Radio Show at every Thursday evening from 1800 – 2000 hours.
